North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven (NTB) prepared for the future with the four new Liebherr ship to shore (STS) container cranes

Innovative straddle carrier lane covers open only over the active lane, providing protection for those on the ground. Stack and vessel anti-collision, in addition to a vessel drift compensation system, provides safety when operating. Crane to crane, and crane to ship, laser anti-collision systems provide further safety when the crane is travelling or booming down.

Speaking about the cranes Christian Lankenau, Managing Director NTB commented, 'We are pleased to add four new Liebherr ship to shore container cranes to our fleet. These new cranes and the previous six allow us to provide exceptional service to our customers. We have invested in these large state-of-the-art cranes, not only for the present, but also for the future and they are a key part of our growth and expansion plans.

For NTB it was very straightforward to invest in Liebherr cranes again. Our experience with Liebherr equipment in terms of performance, reliability and service has been very satisfying.'

David Griffin, Managing Director at Liebherr Container Cranes added. 'It has been very exciting to work with NTB. Designing high performance machines to customers exacting specifications is always rewarding, but to secure repeat orders on the strength of the machines performance is doubly so.'

NTB is one of the most important European container terminals with an annual handling volume of more than 3 million TEU.
